ProtéJ is a new entrepreneur mentorship program, which will be the first formal effort to support Jewish start-up entrepreneurs in Atlanta.
The ProtéJ program will support the thriving and vibrant community of “Indie Innovators” that, up until now, has had no formal program to promote and support innovation or “start-up” efforts. This group of social entrepreneurs who lead new ventures that benefit the Jewish community, are ripe for mentorship and professional development; this program will meet those needs.
By matching the “Indie Innovators” with mentors who have outstanding business and leadership experience, broad social networks, time and passion to give to mentees, and the desire to enhance the Jewish community of Atlanta, these “start-up” venture’s founders and owners will learn valuable skills, make new connections, and, in turn, will be better suited to impact our Jewish community.
The first year of the ProtéJ program will see at least four innovators matched with mentors.
